Anastas Staykov Prize winners have their own exhibition at Plovdiv Gallery

On 21 June 2024, the Diploma Artworks exhibition opened at Plovdiv Gallery, showing graduation works by pupils from different specialisms of the Tsanko Lavrenov National School of Arts. It includes those selected by the school’s Pedagogical Council for the Anastas Staykov Prize—2024’s top alumni.


In a tradition that originated in 1988, the Anastas Staykov prize is awarded at the end of each school year. Talented school-leavers receive diplomas from the ‘13 Centuries of Bulgaria’ National Endowment Fund and financial prizes provided by the heiress of Smolyan-born artist Anastas Staykov. His daughter, Dr Maria Staykova, is a benefactor of the Fund’s donation account.


And here are this year’s winners of the Anastas Staykov Prize: Painting – Daniela Kostadinova; Graphic Art – Irina Pavlova; Mural Painting – Donika Chocheva; Advertising Graphic Art – Mila Bobotsova; Spatial Design – Tanya Kazakova; Spatial Design – Ralitsa Drumchiyska; Iconography – Diana Matova.
